services-utilities-1The Utilities Office is located in the Municipal Building at 300 N. Defiance Street. If you are a new resident to Archbold, or you are moving and need your service changed over, you must contact the Utilities Office to make necessary arrangements. Archbold residents are responsible for paying their monthly water bills by mail, directly to the utilities office, or through direct payments. Water bills are mailed on the fifth day of each month and are due on the 15th of the month. If the 15th falls on a weekend or an official holiday, payment is due on the next business day. Payments made after the 15th of the month are subject to a 10% penalty charge. 

New residents to the Village must come to the Municipal Building to fill out an application for service. A $200.00 deposit is required to set up an account for in-town residents who are renting, and a $100.00 deposit is required for residents outside the Village limits who are renting. This deposit will be held as long as they are renting. If they purchase a home or move out of town, the final bill is deducted from their deposit and the balance is refunded to them.

The Village of Archbold also offers direct payments on water bills. A direct payment comes directly out of the resident’s checking or savings account. Forms for direct payments are available at the Utilities Office or click here to print a Direct Payment form. A resident can expect direct payments to begin the following month after filling out the paperwork. For more information about the Direct Withdrawal Bank Plan click here.
